Masks with corrective lenses. Where to get them?

Hi,

I'm getting old and I realized that I need corrective (proggresive) lenses in my mask . Where can I get them installed in my mask? I know that in Italy they install them in any mask, but here in the USA is there a place to get them without the need of selling a kidney?

Thanks,

Do you need them to See? or just to read your computer?
If the latter, just put a magnifying insert in one corner of your mask, works GREAT!

I've been using them since 2007 for reading computer. 2010 went to distance and computer reading ground lenses. I'll give them a 10 out of 10 rating.

Great customer service and products. Look the up!

I wear progressives lenses and Sea Vision was able to make a mask that worked for me. However, I believe there are some mask models they cannot install the lenses in so check with them to see if the mask you currently use can be converted.

Iíve read where some folks ignore the directions and install these backwards and/or in the top of the mask, or in just one side. Any wisdom on this from your experience? I need to do this in the next few days.
